MCEP Electronic Applications

How to Apply

In the quest for the dti to improve service quality to our country we have embarked on a modernisation process that will take us on a 2 year journey. We have embarked on identifying areas that we can change quickly that will have a major impact on our clients and assist the dti in processing incentive applications faster.

MCEP was chosen as a start for this change especially the MCEP Application process and therefore.

The benefits of this change are to:

  • Reduce and better manage the amount of supporting documentation.
  • Ensure that only fully completed applications are submitted.
  • Reduce the application size by only requesting mandatory information, based on the applicant's component selection.

Please note that all applications must be submitted online, the dti will not accept any e-mailed or manual applications.
